These little isopods are excellent to use in combination with springtails in moist enclosures with substrate. They are fast breeders, and their bright white coloration makes them easy targets for hungry small predators. Large populations are capable of eating entire dead cockroaches, making container maintenance much easier. Anecdotal evidence suggests they may consume viable cockroach oothecae, so they are best used for cleaning up ovoviviparous species. Despite this, they will not touch reptile eggs, making them the perfect clean-up crew for humidity loving herptiles.
